  1. Sleeved motor build

    All true. It's just that the total cost is usually pretty stout (like half the cost of a blower setup). The logic goes, if you're going to get porting, might as well do a guide job, then new valves and guides, check the deck, etc. With shipping to and from (unless you live close enough to...
  2. Sleeved motor build

    That's really personal preference. Head work is one of those things that's lower on the list for most owners because it's pretty spendy and you can usually make more power than the car/chassis can handle without having to do it. If you can only stomach 1000 rwhp, etc, you can get there without...
  3. Sleeved motor build

    Because you're using a centri, the springs aren't as crucial as they would be for say a turbo setup and the float issues on the exhaust valves/ports. The other reason to upgrade would be if you're wanting to increase the rpm limit significantly. The factory springs and their lower spring...
  4. GT350R pre-runner edition??? ummmm

    Bagging a GT350 is like putting 22" thin wall street tires on Ford Raptor. And despite everyone's reaction, I'm betting they'll get their asking price eventually. If you haven't noticed, there's a isht load of people out their with more money than sense. 50% of the people you meet are...
  5. Hard Transmission line fitting to AN Adapter

    I'm finishing up the transmission installation. I have a Magnum XL with the front plate pump (to retain the remote cooling). I'd like to repurpose the hard/aluminum transmission cooler lines, but the inlet and return don't line up with the 3160. I can either cut and flare and tube nut/insert...
  6. Race Ramp FlatStoppers - Do they work?

    I was going to say, if I leave my 4Runner with K02's for more than a couple of days I get flat spots and it takes a couple of days to work them all the way out. With low profile, stiff wall tires, it's much less of a concern and issue. I just don't know why people don't put the car on stands...
  7. New 1400rwhp TT build finally hits the Dyno

    I know South Florida basically means anything Orlando or South but I'm in the greater Miami area and of all the places I've lived it has to be the worst place to be a car enthusiast. It's either raining or traffic (or both). We have so many car meet ups that get rained out and finding anytime...
  8. Fuel systems with an OEM style bucket

    You obviously have something on your mind. Just come out with it. The pumps both sit inside the bucket (OEM and virtually all the in tank solutions). Each "hanger" or bucket has it's own one way in flow design (some use a bladder style check gate, Radium has used a simple ball check valve...
  9. Fuel systems with an OEM style bucket

    It's a stretch. Fuel pump marketing numbers are to be taken with a grain of salt. The 440 is badass, but it flows only 380 or so at 75 psi (370 at 80 psi). If you assume someone would need a blower/turbo and if you assume they'd need around 20 psi above base (say 55) then at 13.5 volts, the...
  10. Fuel systems with an OEM style bucket

    I think DW now offers make/model specific drivers for their 440's. The first gen of sales was basically 3 offerings, full boogie, 2 stage ramped and PWM. Now they offer the kits and different part numbers based off the vehicle application. I'd call DW, this is probably resolved further for...
  11. Part number for just the starter solenoid?

    I have a sneaky suspicion that a bunch of alternators that are sold as new are actually remanufactured or refurbished using core/recycle parts.
  12. Part number for just the starter solenoid?

    Is there any particular affinity for the OEM part in this case? There are some pretty solid alternator manufacturers on the market. Denso, Mechman, Powermaster, etc. Denso does a lot of the OEM part supply contracts, but sometimes Ford (and everyone really) ventures away and there's some...
  13. BMR Road race K member installed

    Let me first say, it's been a long time coming. I actually talked to BMR (don't remember who) about a K member for the S550/GT350 a couple of years ago and was basically told, it wasn't worth the squeeze, only a few lbs of weight and the cost to develop it and fab it would make selling it...
  14. Fuel systems with an OEM style bucket

    I'm unclear exactly what you're asking
  15. Fuel systems with an OEM style bucket

    By the way, after discussing these types of issues with everyone from Radium to Aeromotive to Deatschwerks to Fuellab, it became clear to me that the IRS and saddle bag fuel tank setup isn't just a problem for mustangs. Speaking with Aeromotive, they were hesitant to put any R/D or investment...
  16. Fuel systems with an OEM style bucket

    The OEM bucket is tiny and the syphon system is barely more than a trickle. For mortal power levels it's probably okay, but for something that could potentially be drinking 700+ liters/hour, it still presents a possibility that under the right conditions, the bucket can be depleted and the...
  17. Fuel systems with an OEM style bucket

    Still won't eliminate the issues of starvation. Even OEM and modified N/A 350s have the issue of power fade when coming out of long left turns. With high hp, you still run the risk of a dry bucket if the fuel is low because the OEM hanger has only a very small amount of fuel in reserve
  18. Fuel systems with an OEM style bucket

    I know what a surgw tank is. No one said they're the same. However, pumping from the passive side into the active saddle is essentially the same principle as a surge tank. Both use lift pumps to keep the primary pumps surrounded and fed with a proper reservoir of fuel. The surge tank is...
  19. DIY Supercharger?

    The biggest issues you'd have (that are different than buying a kit) would be the mounting and alignment to the motor/serpentine. There are people that have problems with belts and those are from kits that have been beta'd and R/D'd to fit. Nothing is impossible, but in this respect, a turbo...
  20. Fuel systems with an OEM style bucket

    I think his bigger issue is the fuel level/starvation. There's a TON of fuel setups on the market right now that will "support" (with a giant asterisk) lots of power. But you have to treat it like a drag car. You shouldn't go below a certain fuel level when asking it for the full sauce...
